Before making a choice in favor of a particular toilet model, all basic technical parameters should be studied as closely as possible sample you like. It is no secret that toilets differ not only in design and cost - different models are characterized by different sizes, ways of installing the bowl and release configuration. Particular attention should be paid to parameters such as the height of the seat above the floor and the length of the toilet. For all manufacturers, the width standards are almost identical and are 55-60 cm, but the length of the toilet is very diverse and varies from 63 to 89 cm. The height parameters can be from 40 to 42 cm.
It is important that using the toilet is convenient for all household members - both children and adults. This is especially true when people of different ages live in the same house.
As far as the release configuration is concerned, there are several ways to define the procedure for connecting the toilet to the sewer - vertical, horizontal and oblique … In city apartments, products with an oblique outlet are most often used, models with horizontal and vertical mechanisms are optimal for private houses and cottages.
As we mentioned, toilets can be floor-standing and suspended … The first category includes equipment with a pedestal that is fixed to the floor. The disadvantages of all these models include certain inconveniences that arise during cleaning the room, since the space behind the toilet remains difficult to access, and it is difficult to qualitatively clean it from settling dust. However, such toilets are cheaper than hanging ones.
Bowl wall-hung toilet does not contact the floor and is fixed to the installation. The installation itself, the tank, as well as all engineering communications are hidden behind boxes, usually they are made of drywall. Such models are optimal for small bathrooms, since the free floor space and the absence of a visually visible cistern create the visual effect of a spacious room. The dimensions of such a bathroom seem larger than they actually are. In addition, suspended models are optimal for equipping combined bathrooms.
In general, professional plumbers appreciate the functionality of Cersanit products. Nevertheless, in recent years, on review sites, one can more and more often come across the opinion that Polish products become less durable … The fact is that several years ago this company moved its production facilities outside Poland. It is these toilets made in other countries that are criticized, although representatives of the company itself assure that all products are manufactured under the supervision of Polish specialists using technological equipment.
The rapid development of the domestic market led to the fact that the technical support of the brand began to lag behind the needs of the market. So, service centers in the country are not present in all cities, and even in them, calling a foreman to carry out maintenance can be significantly hampered by a high number of orders. But most of the critical user reviews about different models of Cersanit toilets primarily relate to the flush filling of the cistern, namely:
- the volume of the tank is incomparable with the dimensions of the toilet itself, the pressure of the liquid is too weak - a funnel does not form when flushing, therefore, in order to flush, it is often necessary to flush the water many times;
- the drain button is quite sensitive - if you press it all the way, then it can simply sink right after the fluid is drained;
- drain fittings do not block the descent - as a new portion of water enters the tank, it continues to flow in a thin stream;
- gaskets that prevent the appearance of leaks are pressed through rather quickly and cease to fulfill their purpose, while it is quite difficult to get new elements of original production in our country;
- The economical water consumption declared by the manufacturer often does not work correctly, and the drain remains quite high - sometimes a "snag" is hidden under the double economical button, and in fact only one basic mode functions in the toilet.
However, users also highlight the undoubted advantages of such toilets - first of all, it is the laconic design and quiet operation.
It can be concluded that Cersanit products are primarily optimal for those people who have a limited budget for the purchase of sanitary ware. Among the toilet bowls of this brand, you can choose a relatively budgetary model so that it does not crack and fall apart for several years. At the same time, there are no complaints about the ceramic components of the installations, they all relate only to plastic spare parts.
